350 Hill Street
This is art within art.
The architectural fabric of Dolores Heights is elegantly highlighted in the home at 350 Hill Street. Created by John Maniscalco, a San Francisco architect well-known for his responsive, honest, and well-crafted modern homes, 350 Hill Street is a house to remember. It is understated but dignified with a statuesque presence that remains warm and inviting. While walking through the three levels of living it becomes apparent that Maniscalco is a master at creating spaces that manipulate light in many ways, yet naturally, using open floor plans, skylights, soaring ceilings, and floating staircases.
Every inch of this home is an artful expression of modern living. Upon entry you walk up to the public rooms with spaces nicely separated to allow for gracious entertaining or comfortable small gatherings of family and friends. The ceilings soar and the accordion doors to the garden create a sense of limitless space just outside. The kitchen is sleek and functional with rift cut oak cabinets, Viking appliances, and Caesar stone countertops.
On the next floor of living are three of the bedrooms. The master suite is beautifully appointed with panoramic views looking to the South and East. Looking over the garden and each with a private deck are two more bedrooms and a full bathroom. The fourth bedroom and full bath is on the first level of living and is also nicely used as a family/media room.
Living in the perfect balance of metal, glass, and wood is magically realized in this home.
